A healthy, delicious, spicy carrot cake is a dessert no one tires of (seriously, we stand by that statement!) — which is why you'll love chef Jeff Henderson of Flip My Food 's "flip" on how to serve and enjoy this treat. In short, instead of serving up slices of cake, chef Jeff loves to cut his carrot cake into slices and layer it with Greek yogurt in a Mason jar, creating the cutest, most delicious carrot cake trifle you've ever seen. We've got the quick five-minute instructions for the trifle below, so all you'll need is your favorite carrot cake recipe — and PS, we're obsessed with this carrot cake recipe by So Fab Food (shown above).
